After seeing this teaser I’ve been theorising with friends and gamers alike on who/what the new heroes are.
So far I believe the bird-like character with the gun/launcher, based on the visible attire and weapon, to be another Peacekeeper and being an Aviant likely known to Benedict and Toby.
The robot or mech-suit, being a robot or mech-suit, could possibly be an LLC and if it is a robot could contain the AI of Nova or as one of my friends suggested the Magna Carta.
By process of elimination, I believe the reptilian to be a Rogue, because…
I think the female is Empress Lenore.
What we know of the Varelsi so far is little to nothing. We know that they came from an alternate universe/dimension and they’re sucking our stars through what we call the “void”
We don’t know for what purpose, but my theory is that the “void” is a gateway or portal to their own universe/dimension and they are not destroying stars but harvesting them, but to what end? Any and all theories are welcome! Perhaps the stars in their own universe expired, perhaps they harvest them in a similar way to the Jennerit and used up all theirs (Which could explain Rendain’s betrayal) perhaps, perhaps.
But I believe that the Empress is not dead, rather being held in the Varelsi universe, perhaps for Rendain or for some other purpose that we are not yet aware of. I believe that we will see the Empress again, either at the end of the campaign or in one of the five downloadable PvE missions.
I also believe that the five extra PvE side missions will each be themed toward a particular faction and will each feature the new character of that faction. Perhaps the Jennerit quest will feature them reverse-engineering Varelsi tech, with the help of the LLC, in order to open a gateway to the “void” and retrieve the Empress? Perhaps the UPR side quest will involve doing the same thing, but for the purpose of either wiping out the remaining Varelsi, retrieving the lost stars, or both. If this is so then I’d expect these to be the last two missions released.
What are your thoughts Battleborn?
